Must-Watch Military Documentary
8 February 2014 | by AngelaCarroll9See all my reviews

This 2008 documentary was outstanding due to content alone. I really enjoyed the interviews of the living Congressional Medal of Honor members and how they were filmed(intimate setting & heartfelt dialogue). I expected to cry a lot but was pleasantly surprised to laugh out loud at one of the personal accounts. The film obviously conveys the stories of the brave, humble & heroic recipients but also explains the hierarchy of military medals. Honestly, there could and should be a movie about each recipient. I wish it could have been a two or three-part series since there was a lot of detail to cover in 1.5 hours. I will watch this again and am hoping that there will be another documentary to cover the most recent recipients.
